Detailed mountain weather forecast: Peak District

Tuesday

Weather

Extensive low cloud and widespread hill fog, especially over east facing slopes at first. Visibility will gradually improve through the morning as the low cloud lifts and the mist disperses, with sunny spells and isolated showers developing into the afternoon, before the cloud again reforms and spreads from the east through the evening.

Visibility

Poor in early mist with widespread hill fog, gradually improving to good later.

Hill fog

Extensive above 200m in the east especially first thing. Gradually lifting and breaking to clear the higher peaks by the afternoon. The west will see more broken cloud amounts throughout and less hill fog.

Maximum winds above 400m

Easterly 15mph.

Temperature

Valleys Plus 11 becoming 17 Celsius.
600 m Plus 12 Celsius.
Freezing level Well above the peaks.

Wednesday

Weather

A cloudier day than Tuesday, with a more marked east-west split, in part due to the strengthened wind. Early low cloud will prove stubborn to lift, especially so in the east, with the west seeing the best of limited sunny intervals. The cloud may bring a little light rain or drizzle at times, replaced by an increasing risk of a few sharp showers as cloud breaks develop later.

Visibility

Poor with extensive hill fog becoming mainly good.

Hill fog

Blanket above 200m in the east, gradually rising to 400m with some limited breaks. Breaks more extensive and lasting in the west throughout.

Maximum winds above 400m

Northeasterly 20mph.

Temperature

Valleys Plus 11 becoming plus 18 Celsius.
600 m Plus 13 Celsius.
Freezing level Well above the peaks.

Outlook

Thursday

Still a marked east-west split, with hill fog most extensive and persistent in the windward east. The afternoon will bring some sunny intervals, the best in the west, but also the risk of further sharp showers.

Friday

Similar conditions to preceding days, although the easterly wind may weaken to lower cloud bases and give a greater tendency to morning mist and fog. Showers remain a risk as conditions brighten into the afternoon.

Saturday

After a cloudy start brighter conditions will develop by early afternoon. Just a small chance of a sharp shower.
